The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle says that she and her husband Prince Harry are thrilled to be soon welcoming their second child. She says it is a feeling of joy they share with millions of families around the world.

She says, "when we think of her, we think of all the women around the globe who must be given the ability and support to lead us forward."

With that said, Markle doesn't feel an oversized baby shower with gifts is appropriate right now. She believes that there is too much strife in the world right now.

Meghan and Harry have been so involved with humanitarian issues, they both feel their time and resources can be used for a better purpose, a source close to US weekly shared.

The couple is said to be a 'bit nervous' about transitioning from 1 to 2 children. They are currently giving Archie all the attention he needs as he eagerly awaits the arrival of his baby sister.
